Ingersoll tracks

Two major rail lines run through the Town of Ingersoll. One is owned by CN Rail and the other is owned by CP Rail and is maintained and operated by Ontario Southland Railroad. There is a wide variety of goods, both dangerous and nondangerous, that travel through Ingersoll daily. It is important to know the dangers of a rail line and how to avoid them.

In the event of an emergency, help us help you by ensuring first responders can find your address:

  1. Post your house number at the front of your home or business where it is visible from the street.
  2. Install a light fixture above the house numbers.
  3. Use large, plain numbers – not script or other hard-to-read lettering.
  4. Use colours that contrast, such as black on white.
